She grew up at Solderup, Hostrup Parish, Toender County with 9 half-siblings, being recorded  at her confirmation  in 1879 with her mother's husband, Hans Christian Thomsen (1848-1898), as her foster father. In 1885 she arrived from Hamburg into the US on board the SS Rhaetia, and 1887 she showed up in Genoa, Nevada, obviously married to Edward Sullivan. By the 1900 Federal Census they lived near Woodfords in Alpine County, California, and in 1910 she and the children lived at Carson City apart from Edward who worked as a foreman at ranch in Osceola Precinct, White Pine County. By 1920 they were reunified at Carson City, as still in 1930 and only shortly before her death in 1947, she moved to Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, California to live with daughter Edna's family there.  -
